Lost In Space

3

Classic TV show reboot or parody?

As director Stephen Hopkins all but admits in a thorough yak-track, his update of the ’60s show about a family stranded in the stars is a schizoid business, caught between piss-take and reboot, kid-friendliness and something darker.

The hokey homilies are explained as old-school throwbacks. But even Hopkins’ ambitions falter: incoherent plotting, William Hurt’s wooden thesping and visuals that look dated in HD.

Weirdest of all: Gary Oldman camping it up in Joey Tribbiani audition mode
